At SAM, we believe in the following Core Values
We strive to inspire life-long learning in visitors of all ages through unique educational experiences with original and significant artworks.
We seek to build community, both within the walls of the museum as well as within the region. We strive to encourage partnering with other artistic academic, cultural and professional communities to more effectively utilize shared resources and better serve the community at large.
We applaud the creative spirit in all its forms. We continue to seek innovative ways to inspire and honor creative ideas from the community, staff and SAM supporters.
As Harrisburg’s only dedicated art museum, we take seriously the responsibility of presenting innovative approaches to art and lifelong learning.
We believe that the emotional response to art has the ability to foster human connectedness. We are committed to engaging diverse audiences through exhibitions and experiences that promote understanding and social discourse.
